3 Types Of People

3 Types Of People

Ben Franklin said, there are 3 types of people in the world:

  1. Those that are immovable.
  2. Those that are movable.
  3. And those that move.

The Immovables sit around scratching their heads wondering how others could possibly be so successful. They don’t get it, they don’t want to get it, they’re not going to do anything about it.

The Movables see a successful person and copy them as closely as possible without getting sued. They see the need for change and are prepared to listen to it. They’re like a flock of penguins on the precipice of a glacier: “You jump, no you jump. No you first, then I’ll go."

The Movers are the ones who take action, the people who get things done. There’s a reason we have the phrase “movers and shakers." These people make things happen.

An entrepreneur is the third type—a Mover. You work with and hire 2’s but avoid 1's. Get your team moving together in the right direction and momentum takes place.

If you get enough people to move, then it becomes a movement and the real change begins to happen. When the movement is strong enough that it becomes a revolution.

Sitting around waiting for change to happen in your life, business, or community? It’s time to getting moving, Mover.

[Franklin’s quote heard from Ken Robinson’s talk :: How to educate education’s death valley]
